Jamie Lee Curtis is back as Laurie Strode and she's ready for some revenge. I don't know about you, but I'm excited about this one. Halloween is a classic nostalgic childhood memory and I love a sequel. The new release is set 40 years after the original. Michael escapes from a prison bus and is once again on the loose and looking for Laurie. Watch the trailer below. The movie will be in theaters on October 19th.
Master of horror John Carpenter executive produces and serves as creative consultant on this film, joining forces with cinema’s current leading producer of horror, Jason Blum (Get Out, Split, The Purge, Paranormal Activity). Inspired by Carpenter’s classic, filmmakers David Gordon Green and Danny McBride crafted a story that carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 film, and Green also directs.
Halloween is also produced by Malek Akkad, whose Trancas International Films has produced the Halloween series since its inception, and Bill Block (Elysium, District 9). In addition to Carpenter and Curtis, Green and McBride will executive produce under their Rough House Pictures banner. Ryan Freimann also serves in that role.
Halloween will be distributed worldwide by Universal Pictures. www.HalloweenMovie.com
